UFC 155 posterThe final line-up for UFC 155: Dos Santos vs. Velasquez is now set with Joe Lauzon and Jim Miller slotted in as the co-main event for the card.

The last UFC show of 2012 has undergone quite a few changes over the last month with former light heavyweight champion Forrest Griffin suffering an injury and cancelling his fight with Phil Davis, while Chris Weidman’s shoulder surgery put him out of his scheduled bout against Tim Boetsch.

The changes have resulted in a boost to the co-main event slot for lightweights Joe Lauzon and Jim Miller who battle it out in what is expected to be a high paced 155lb contest.

Despite Weidman’s injury, Tim Boetsch remains on the card and now faces Costa Philippou instead. Also the newly rescheduled bout between Melvin Guillard and Jamie Varner occupies a space on the UFC 155 FX prelims after their bout had to be cancelled at the TUF 16 finale show when Varner came down ill just hours before the fight.

Here is the final line-up for the UFC 155: Dos Santos vs. Velasquez fight card:

Junior Dos Santos vs. Cain Velasquez – UFC heavyweight title fight

Joe Lauzon vs. Jim Miller
Tim Boetsch vs. Costa Philippou
Alan Belcher vs. Yushin Okami
Chris Leben vs. Derek Brunson

Eddie Wineland vs. Brad Pickett
Erik Perez vs. Byron Bloodworth
Melvin Guillard vs. Jamie Varner
Michael Johnson vs. Myles Jury

Todd Duffee vs. Phil DeFries
Chris Cariaso vs. John Moraga

    • Johnny L

  • doug

    How is the pickett v wineland fight only a prelim

    • zztoppppp

      Probably to put an exciting fight on the prelims, just like Guillard and Varner. These two fights are both main card worthy but are put on free tv to sway fans to buy the ppv since they are almost guaranteed first round KOs

  • stak

    They should have made Belcher vs Okami the co-main. And then pushed Belcher for a title shot if he looked good.

  • This card is stacked.

  • Karl

    Damn,Guillard and Varner fight should´ve been in the main card. Guaranteed fireworks!
